          Lovely garden with place for children to play. Very helpful and caring hostess. The only advice I would give is to suggest that a top sheet be supplied when weather is hot as a duvet is a bit too warm

          Maureen was a superb hostess. The evening meal she served, was really good. Room was very comfortable. In all honesty we could not fault a single thing.

          We only stayed 1 night, but were met with great hospitality. Our room was spacious, comfortable and warm which was great as it was freezing outside. We were provided with a delicious evening meal, which all of us including my 6 and 8 year girls old loved! The highlight for my girls was definitely playing with the dogs in the morning. Would definitely stay there again.

          We stayed at Shanks as an alternate to Gariep dam. This is a small property with one 4 bed and one 2 bed unit on the farm. My kids had a great time playing with the friendly collie dogs and swimming in the pool. I really found this a good stop over, but it does have about a km of gravel road, so if you have a super low car, give it a skip.
